Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara

Call us for prices & availability


Like an opulent palace rising out of the ochre sand, Anantara Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort offers a truly unique holiday experience that takes you a world away from the usual. Sitting at the heart of Abu Dhabi’s desert, the hotel enjoys dramatically beautiful scenery of towering dunes as far as the eye can see.  

Perfect as a backdrop for romance, the otherworldly views blend with charming Middle Eastern hospitality to make every stay special. You can enjoy luxurious and relaxing treatments in the spa, dine at one of three high quality restaurants or just enjoy the pool area.

Every room features free Wi-Fi and is decorated in traditional Arabic style, making for a lovely authentic experience of Abu Dhabi. For the ultimate in luxury you can upgrade to one of the pool villas for your own private swimming pool. There are great family-friendly activities as well as plenty of fun aimed at adults – so whether you’re travelling as a couple or a family you’ll have a huge range of things to do.

For some fun you can enjoy some traditional Emirati desert activities including walks, camel treks, landing sailing and desert safaris – and make sure you experience dune bashing for a thrilling and unforgettable way to explore the sands. For a more relaxed approach you can chill out with desert yoga or watch an enthralling falcon show.
